I watched with amazement as this young Striped Stream snake hoisted itself out of the water and crawled up the underside of the boulder, UPSIDE-DOWN, towards a patch of Hong Kong Cascade frog eggs. It fell several times in the process, either having failed to properly glue itself to the rock, or in the struggle to tear away the eggs. I'd seen an adult eating eggs on the same rock (previous photos), reaching down from the top to get to the prize.
